Global-Critical Philosophy of Religion Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

Recent years have witnessed the publication of several new proposals for a philosophy of religion that is religiously inclusive and critically informed. But there is to date no such textbook for philosophy of religion—no textbook that thoroughly integrates non-theistic religious philosophies and critically engages the methodological and theoretical issues of religious studies. This seminar intends to research and write such a textbook. Our seminar is constituted by area-specialist scholars of religion, comparativist philosophers of religion, critical theorists of religion, and traditional (analytic) philosophers of religion. These constituencies will work together over the next five years (2015-2019) to identify the comparative categories and critical terms for global-critical philosophy of religion, to populate these categories with the arguments and ideas of a diversity of religious traditions, to take up critical issues pertaining to cross-cultural comparison and philosophy of these arguments and ideas, and to develop the blueprint and content for an innovative new undergraduate textbook in global-critical philosophy of religion. We will also seek to publish independently the essays that are contributed to each working session of the seminar.

Call for Papers: 

N/A -- we have just completed the final (5th) year of our seminar.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members during review, but visible to chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection
In the first four years of our tenure, papers were selected through our blind review process. In the fifth and last year of the seminar, we presented and discussed drafts of chapters for one of the volumes that are produced as the result of our 5 year seminar.
